WASHINGTON — Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Richard Cordray said Wednesday that the agency intends to provide more detail to Congress and the public on its spending plans going forward.

Testifying before a House panel Wednesday, Cordray said Republican concerns about how much information the bureau has provided on its budget are fair. While the bureau's justification for its $448 million 2013 budget request is more comprehensive than it was in its first year, Cordray said, "it is not yet where we want it to be and where it will be in future years."
